Fun & Modern Color Pallet

From the Bride: We decided to go with a pale palette of blush and champagne. My dress was a shade of ivory with a vintage lace overlay, but I knew it needed a belt. I had been eyeing the Maggie Sottero belt for months and was so happy the blush hue tied in perfectly with the wedding palette.

Since we had eight bridesmaids I didn’t want to have a wall of the same coloured dress, so I decided to go with four different colours in the same palette. The girls looked absolutely stunning in their dresses.

Sleep On It

Also, don’t get over excited and buy something because you must have it. I know it’s hard, but sleep on it. If it’s something you decide is a must get, research like crazy to find the best price. For example there was a hair piece I loved, but was $200. I couldn’t justify spending that kind of money on just a small hair piece. I opted for one from Claire’s for $4.99 and no one was the wiser.

Lyrics of Legend

I was watching Oprah’s Next Chapter on John Legend and he premiered his song “All of Me.” Frank came into the room and said that was the song he wanted as our first dance. I of course agreed. I incorporated the song lyrics as part of our design. I found a cake topper with a line from the song and created chalkboard signs with some of the lyrics.
